Is there a plugin that allows editing in tiled view?
there are a few programs i know of that allow editing in tiled view (as in it tiles the image you are working on endlessly across the screen, so you cant see its edges, drawing off the edge simply goes on to the opposite side, perfect for textures)

anyway, pixen is the only one i can remember, which is only for mac, which i no longer have, and it was rather simple. i know of some others, but not by name.

is there some sort of plugin for gimp that would allow me to edit in tiled view like that? the make seamless option is really not that great for texturing things that have a very specific pattern to them... its only good for more natural patterns.

like what? there are image editors out there already that have the option, usually under the view tab. most of these are very simple editors however...

so are there any methods of making seamless textures manually?

i suppose that would work for small pixel art, but if you are using the healing tool, it wouldnt quite connect, since you would not be able to make it exactly the same on opposing sides...

well, if you are describing what i think you are describing, then i wouldn't need to try to know it wouldn't work, however im thinking i misunderstand some of your terms. im self-taught at gimp, so... ill grab a dictionary and read over what you said again, i think.

@Ofnuts: Being avid at trying to make tiles seemlessly like that in GIMP, it is not an efficient, quick, or good enough of a solution. Yes, I've done it many times, but it is a horrible method compared to what 13thvulture is asking. This type of feature would be very useful for me as well as I draw map tiles all the time for game art, whether it being pixel or digital.
